High Industrial Growth and Rise in Use of Advanced Technologies to Drive Asia Pacific Market for Gas Detection Equipment

On the basis of geography, North America is leading and is expected to continue to do so throughout the forecast period. However, Asia Pacific is anticipated to expand at the fastest pace of 7.9% CAGR between 2016 and 2024. High industrial growth and growing use of advanced technologies such as drones which are equipped with gas detectors in countries such as Japan and Singapore will contribute to the growth of the Asia Pacific gas detection equipment market. Growing number of gas exploration projects in Asia Pacific will also fuel the growth opportunities within the market.

On the basis of technology, single gas detection equipment segment accounted for 74% in 2015. Single gas detection equipment is leading on account of its compact and lightweight design. By type of gas, the combustible gases segment led in 2015, accounting for 46% of the total market. On the basis of end use, the industrial sector has been leading due to the presence of many heavy operating areas such as food and beverages sector and chemical industry. The oil and gas segment was the second leading end use segment and is driven by the high demand for energy.

Strict Regulations Regarding Precautionary Measures for Workers' Safety to Remain Major Driver

The lead author of this report states that "the prime factor driving the growth of the global gas detection equipment market is the increasing efforts taken by industry associations and government bodies all over the world, towards workers' safety." Strict norms and regulations relating to precautionary measures to safeguard workers' life have been laid worldwide. Some of these include, the FE-02 policy of Manchester mental health and social care trust which requires all gas detection systems to be checked regularly and the health and safety executive of Great Britain which makes it mandatory to make use of gas detectors in work place that involve offshore oil plants or gas plants.

Reduced Profit Margin for Manufacturers to be an Issue

The global gas detection equipment market is also receiving an impetus from the increasing Shale gas exploration activities. The increasing population and thus the high demand for energy will also be an important factor that will help the market to grow. On the other hand, reduced profit margin by market players in order to sustain the stiff competition may hinder the market to some extent.

This review is based on the findings of a TMR report, titled, “Gas Detection Equipment Market (Product Type - Fixed Gas Detector and Portable Gas Detector; Technology - Single Gas and Multi Gas; Type of Gas - Combustible, Toxic, Oxygen, and Dedicated; End-use Industry - Oil and Gas, Mining, Industrial, Building, and Automation; Sensor Technology - Electrochemical, Infrared, Metal Oxide, Catalytic, and Zirconia) - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2016 - 2024.”
